Responsibility. One of the toughest things to teach a kid.
But taking small steps toward building responsible kids who grow into responsible adults can be done. And in easy ways during the course of earning the “Responsible for What I say and Do” Daisy Petal in Girl Scouts.
10 ideas to teach your Daisies and Brownies about being Responsible for What I Say and Do:
- Make a chore chart for home.

- Read Dude! That’s Rude! Get Some Manners!
- Practice saying I’m sorry.
- Teach your Girl Scouts phone manners or take manners.

(Your parents will likely throw a parade in your honor!)
- Have your Girl Scout troop make thank you cards to anyone who had helped the troop during the year.
